About this Cook
I'm a good cook, but I'm more comfortable following a recipe.
My favorite things to cook
I like casseroles and one dish meals. I really don't like cooking husband usually takes care of that while I do all the side dishes and desserts. (AND the cleanup!) LOL!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey on THanksgiving and Ham for Easter...special cakes on birthdays.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Paprikas like my mother-in-law used to make. Hers was the best ever!
My cooking tragedies
Cooked a ham with the plastic still on it for my in-laws first dinner with us. I poked it with whole cloves and decorated it with pineapple rings and cherries and when we tried to cut it, we realized the plastic was still on it.

Pavlova's Pavlova
This is wonderful! Easy and delicious and company thinks I slaved all day to make it! Make sure you leave it in the oven for at least an hour to dry, or it'll be like sticky cotton candy. I added 4 tsps. grated lemon peel and it's delicious!

Easiest, Most Delicious Meringue Buttercream
This recipe was a real pain. I used 1 cup of unsalted butter. It tasted bland and wasn't worth the time it took to make it.
